Wow! It has came a long ways! Is the roof electric? I can see what looks like rams on the back. Will the battery be solar rechargeable?

What does the interior look like?

I feel like a little kid with so many questions... :roll:

Not electrical.

What looks like rams are PVC pipe covering drawer slides.

Two 100 watt flexible solar panels are free to placed anywhere within 50 feet.

The battery can be charged three ways.
Solar, shore power or alternator when driving.
When shore power is connected the 120V automatically switches from 3000 Watt inverter to shore power.

Working on interior now. Will post partial interior pics.
